56. You're absolutely correct. I have a monstrous RW penpal I e-mail back and forth with...
and I've gotten to the point with him where he is sometimes honest. Let me tell you, even his honesty is disturbing to me. What little honesty he can muster, I should say. The man is highly uncomfortable with the cognitive dissonance of me forcing him to face square-on, how the ideology he worships is diametrically opposed to the oh-so-sweet morality he claims to uphold.

Whenever that happens (that I force him to face his non-sensical beliefs being in direct opposition to his alleged morality), he either gets violently angry, or he drops into ridicule mode, in which he probably googles every anti-Obama quip and quote on right wing websites to distract from the issue that makes him feel so bad.

I think, ultimately, it behooves right wingnuts to REFUSE to analyze their ideology and alleged morality, because the two are direct opposites. In analysis, these can never be reconciled, and, if courageous and honest, they would find themselves abandoning the bullshit that is right wingerism.

In any case, the other day I got him to admit that he really doesn't have much respect for the poor, and that the poor threaten the 'fiber' of America. I realized that he has an emotional, illogical view of the poor. For some ungodly reason, he fears the poor. It's little admissions like this one (which the right wing admit so seldom because they know they are heinous) that are the reason right wingnuts scare the heebee jeebies out of me.

I have to admit that at times I feel a tad guilty because I'm so aware of how much this right winger goes through to defend his bs beliefs in the face of someone who ceaselessly points out directly opposite, unreconcileable views coexist in his mind. I am a constant reminder that he's not a respectable, respectful, respect-deserving human.
